Passage Portfolio Presentation

June, 2021
7:00–8:00 pm edt

Every WHEELS senior presents a ‘portfolio,’ a presentation in which they reflect on their academic and personal growth to a panel of teachers, family and community members. Passage Portfolio Presentations provide our students  with an opportunity to celebrate what they’ve  learned and their readiness to move on to the next phase of their education. Volunteers serve as community panelists and listen to presentations, ask questions, and provide constructive feedback. Passage Portfolio Presentations will take place virtually throughout June, 2021.

Contact fow@wheelsnyc.org to join us as a volunteer community panelist this year.
